Is the Month of April a Good Time to Tour Thailand?

The Songkran Festival is held from 13 to 15 of April. This festival is Thailand’s New Year celebration of the lunar year. If you go in April expect to sprayed or tossed with water as Thais have a holiday and literally cool off. Incidentally, it is also the hottest month of the year (in an already extremely hot place). It’s still better for a visit than the rainy season (Aug-Oct).
